Kevin McDonnell's is partner in the Government, Land Use, Environment and Energy Department at Jeffer Mangels Butler & Mitchell LLP and a member of JMBM's Global Hospitality Group®. He represents developers and owners of hotels in a broad range of land use and zoning issues including entitlements, code enforcement, easements and parking requirements, as well as related Parcel Map and Tract Map subdivision issues. In addition to hotels and condo-hotels, Kevin has been involved in commercial, industrial and residential projects including multi-family, office, retail and mixed-use.

Kevin's practice emphasizes land use, zoning, building construction regulation and occupancy compliance matters. He has assisted numerous developers and businesses in obtaining land use entitlements including industrial, commercial and residential condominiums, multi-lot tract maps, mixed use residential/commercial high rise building projects, general plan amendments, zone changes, conditional use permits and variances.

He works extensively with local governmental agencies in a large variety of land use and construction issues. Because he is both a registered Civil Engineer and Structural Engineer in California and formerly served as a building official for the City of Los Angeles, his experience uniquely qualifies him to provide professional insight in Zoning and Building Code applications and Code Enforcement issues.
